Christopher Reeve

Sad to hear about the passing of Christopher Reeve. Aside from being known for his quintisential portrayal of Superman, Reeve’s legacy was his tireless work to improve the lives of those suffering from paralysis. It is impossible to imagine the devastating effect sudden paralysis had on his life, but for him to channel his energy and have such a positive effect on so many is admirable beyond words.

As kids, my brother and I watched the Superman movies so often that the tape wore out. I think that having such a strong attachment to the character through childhood resulted in a keen interest in Reeve’s tragedy, struggles and triumphs over the years.
